Following in the un-fun low-calorie food trends à la the flagel comes the Revd 3.14 slice, made with low-fat mozzarella and a 16-grain crust, according to the New York Post. At 170 calories and with five grams of fat, the $3.50 slice is significantly lower in calories and fat than the average 460-calorie slice of pizza. It wouldn’t be surprising, though, if it was just as low in taste and flavor. After all, the purpose of this pizza is to “target [a] customer demographic [of] women between 18 and 40 who want to stay thin.” But hey, maybe it will sell well at Revd Up Pi (451 Third Avenue, 212-679-3743) while thinspiration is at the top of everyone’s minds post-holiday face-stuffing.
